    We are a family with 2 kids. It’s our first time since they reopened and everything was fantastic! The food, the service, the ambience! We will definitely come back.

    Value for money was terrible. Seafood was delicious but variety overall was lacking. Service can’t be faulted. Ridiculously expensive for quality and overall experience. I’d never recommend it to anyone.

    Theevening buffet is much smaller than precovid but there was a good choice. Tables weren't cleared reguarly but otherwise staff attentive. Went for breakfast and disappointed in hot buffet,, eggs were cold and only sramble,, bacon qither burnt or loads of fat. Pastries very nice and so were yoghurt dishes. Some staff attentive others not

    The food selection was vast including crab, Bay bugs, salmon sashimi etc however the food quality was not of a high level. It was clear all seafood was frozen prior and defrosted with the crab having little to no taste. The pizza and other roast items were clearly rushed in their preparation and cooking and were to an average standard. Despite this there were an unbelievable amount of options including curries, pizzas and roasts included with a strong selection for desserts.

    If you love seafood this is the buffet for you. crabs, oysters, bugs, prawns and scallops. They offer other good selections as well and some great deserts. Service is always fantastic here.

    The service and atmosphere was amazing, but the food was not worth the $98. Limited variety and just overall disappointing. This is a restaurant where Gordon Ramsay should pay a visit.

    We booked at 2pm and the booking stated we would have a 1.5hour limit. However, we only had an hour because the restaurant closed at 3pm. It would be better to let people know that this is the case - particularly when you utilise the drinks buffet.

    Great buffet but scaled back from previous years. If you enjoy seafood there are crabs, bugs prawns scallops and oysters. Due to covid it is not self serve anymore but you will be assisted by servers.

    Great, but breads should be served at the soup station. Your soup gets cold while waiting at the salad bar for service

    We had the seafood buffet which is not just seafood and everything I had was absolutely amazing!!! Seafood was very fresh and no skimping on size. Third time we have eaten there and it never fails to amaze us. Restaurant recently renovated and looks amazing. Highly recommend

    Could not fault the quality of the dishes. Citrus Illusion was amazing. Thankyou for a lovely evening. We don't dine out often and this was everything and more.

    We shared all the small plates between the three of us and it was totally wonderful, they bought each of the dishes out in pairs so it felt like one surprise after another.

    Another very enjoyable dinner at Citrique after extensive refurbishment and changes to the buffet due to Co-vid restrictions. Karen, our F&B attendant was professional but warm and friendly. Her attention to detail was excellent as was the lovely staff serving our food. It only took a few moments to adjust to the new procedure with the buffet but the quality was still on par and you still had control of your portion and could return as many times as you like, no awkwardness at all. This was down to the staff working hard to maintain the best possible experience under unusual circumstances. Overall, we were very happy to return after working interstate and we look forward to our next visit.

    The staff are happy, pleasant and very helpful as soon as you walk in. Our waiters Shakirra and Blix were the great, doing things before you had to ask. The food is DELICIOUS especially with the abundance of Seafood that is available. Both hot and cold food and desserts worth going back.

    Seafood bar was fabulous. Services was friendly and flawless. Dessert were great. But hot food selections were a bit overcooked and lacklustre. But made up for by the cold seafood options. Would have liked to see the cheese as part of a separate counter. When it's part of the seafood counter, the line is too long to bother. And it doesn't make sense to ask for cheese with your oysters.

    Staff working the buffet were amazing and friendly. Table stuff were terrible!! They actively avoided coming to the table and we watched multiple staff look at dirty tables and keep walking. It took 45mins to clear a table. No one collected our dirty plates until we asked. Definitely not 5 star or the hotel brands standards. Was better service before the renovation.
